Brace yourselves, the post-Schrems II supplemental measures are coming!
The European Data Protection Board adopted recommendations on measures that supplement transfer tools to ensure compliance with the European Union level of protection of personal data, as well as recommendations on the European Essential Guarantees for surveillance measures.
“The implications of the Schrems II judgment extend to all transfers to third countries. Therefore, there are no quick fixes, nor a one-size-fits-all solution for all transfers, as this would be ignoring the wide diversity of situations data exporters face. Data exporters will need to evaluate their data processing operations and transfers and take effective measures bearing in mind the legal order of the third countries to which they transfer or intend to transfer data,” said EDPB chair Andrea Jelinek
The European Essential Guarantees recommendations provide data exporters with elements to determine if the legal framework governing public authorities’ access to data for surveillance purposes in third countries can be regarded as a justifiable interference with privacy rights.
